Tracer Products says its TP-3940 Dye-Lite Rite-Blend blended fluorescent leak detection dye can be used for both extended-life and conventional coolants. According to the company, the specially formulated dye — which is formulated to be used with any fluorescent leak detection lamp — will not affect the color of extended-life coolants, helping to avoid improper mixing and possible damage to the cooling system.

Tracer says to use the dye, just add a small amount to a system and allow it to circulate; wherever the coolant leaks out, so does the dye, which remains at the site of each and every leak. When the system is scanned with a Tracerline inspection lamp, the dye glows a bright green to show the exact location of the leak, according to the company.
